Ka Jingsneng Tymmen Shaphang ka Akor Khasi ha ka Rukom Rwai Phawar", Part I (1902) & Part Il (1903)








Kane ka phuhmut phuhmat mangkarong,

Long ka kpait thawjot la tynrai la jong;

Lada ka tynrai lajong ka la jot,

Kat sha kaba phi thew phin shem apot;

Ka long briew man briew ka neh ha tynrai

Haduh hadien habud naduh hyndai;

Ko kur ko Kha ba ha ïing ha sem,

Kiar na ka pat kynsha ha it ha them;

Ha ka riam ka pah u kamon u kadiang;

To sian to nang sharai lade kyndiang;

Tang sah ka hok ha khmat U Blei bathaw,

Naduh mynta phin kyndit phin kynmaw.



All superficial pomp and ostentation

undermines Truth and is the root of destruction;

Once your character is destroyed,

Whatever you achieve, no one will applaud;

Well-being is assured if by Truth you abide,

Right from beginning to the end of your life;

Friends, acquaintances and all at home,

Do no wrong deeds wherever you roam;

Don't get ensnared by wicked people,

Be alert, be wary and set an example;

So that you'll always be at one with God,

From now on please remember my words.
